It is green antifreeze. 60% coolant 40% water. Polaris makes it by the quart already done at 60/40 for around 10 bucks if you want to go that route. But it has to be 60/40 so it doesn't freeze below zero. That is the recommended mix rate from Polaris in case you decide to mix some up yourself.
50/50 protects from freezing to -34f, so feel free to not buy the expensive Polaris stuff and just use good quality ethylene glycol (the green stuff) unless you are really dedicated to riding in REALLY cold temps. If it's that cold, you will find me inside by the fire...
For some reason Polaris call 60/40 in those 500s and 440s. But I agree 50-50 is good till -30 or so. I've ridden in that cold of weather with it snowing, it was not a fun ride but it was necessary to get back to the hotel. I only buy that quart from Polaris to keep in one of my sleds as it has saved me before. 3 years ago I got the overheat signal on my '97 Indy 500 and found out it was low. Filling it up while out on the trail and the reservoir got me back home the 80-90 miles. Found out the cap was bad and there was air in the system.
Hello, I just rebuilt the top end of my sled due to it over heating and seizing up. Now that it’s all back together I have pulled and pulled it trying to start it and I get nowhere. I have gas, spark and compression but it just will not start. The choke switch is broken so I cannot choke the...
I have a 1998 Indy 500 and was riding this morning and it was running fine and then bogged down and wouldn't rev above 6000 rpm or get over 30 mph. I did put 330 jets in to replace the stock 350's. it was really cold so i thought the jets might be part of it.
Polaris 650 - 3 cyl - around 1988 - was rebuilt 2 years ago (new pistons etc.)
130+ lbs compression
Spark is Good
Timing is good
no joy :-(
New plugs and checked gap
When I pull the drain plugs should I see a little or no gas?
I just about pulled my arm out (no electric start)...
Not really a Polaris issue, but I move my RMK's using the three piece dollies in my shop. Each of the three dollies have four wheels, and both full sets have had issue with the wheels,,,,,, ball bearings coming out of the swivel..... etc.... I hate to drive the sleds on my concert floor, as the...
